    Thank you! I appreciate both the compliment and the gift! I’m still loving the Amish pins.

    My package arrived! I'm thrilled!
    I'm still in the goldilocks process of figuring out what size things work for me. Fortunately everything fits! Some things are better for center-held buns, and others not so much.

    I've been eying mama cats for months now and even made a pair of sticks (that I need to finish sanding) in imitation. Now I have the real thing! They're really light and go into a bun very smoothly. I was in a hurry putting my hair up for most of these, though, so the buns are a little wonky.


    Turns out 6+ inches works really well for this TT--the bands really help balance out the extra length sticking out. I've always loved the Chloe silhouette and its evolution and now I own one!


    The wildcard...A glass stick! I have to admit, I'm super nervous about this because I'm clumsy and drop stuff all the time. This is an awkward pha bun, but the stick felt secure. Maybe I will keep this stick in supported buns, like a chinese bun or a bun with a french braid base.


    A Grahtoe studios fork! In purpleheart! This is a maker on my wishlist for a long time! I really like the way their forks look. This fork is perfect: the length, the color! It's the right length that it's a stealth toy in a cinnamon but won't dwarf a nautilus (which I wear basically every day).


    And this beauty: a Redheart 2 Prong Fork from the Barreis Collection. I love the shape and color on this one. It marks the smallest I think I can go with a fork, but it keeps a but up well. It also works for half-ups and comet buns, which I want to start doing more of.


    And lastly: a Flexi! This is one make I can't find out sizing for the life of me (they're not very clear about actual measurements, maybe because they're more "mainstream" and most people don't know the length they need?) Fortunately, it works. I have what I think is a small and it's just too small for centerfold buns, but too large for ponytails. This one is big enough to hold a bun. I love the antique-look; it reminds me of spoon jewelry like this.



    And since you can't really see the flexi so well in the last one, here's a better picture of the flexi but a worse angle on the bun


    Thank you so much for running this DweamGoil!! And thank you to those who donated. I'm so excited right now!

    ♥ My package arrived! And the timing was so perfect. It's been a really rough week, and that little box, with its beautiful contents really helped to cheer me up.

    I was super excited about getting a TT hair stick, because I've wanted one for the longest time! And now it's here, and I love it! Every one of the pieces are so lovely!

    My hair isn't quite long enough to easily bun with a fork yet...But I can do half-ups with them in the meantime! And I was able to get it into a bun with the TT stick!









    Thank you, DweamGoiL, for all of your work! And thank you to those who so generously donated! ♥

    Oh boy...That first pic is blurry...I'll get another shot of that toy!
